  • Beautiful architecture. The Zen atmosphere of the museum is very relaxing. Great location - very close to the Kenrokuen Gardens and Kanazawa Castle. 
  • Buddhist philosopher Suzuki Memorial Museum that brought the foot. Walked the back alley arrived at easy Street will lead you, but take a little detour. But is satisfying as walking trails. I don't know about Suzuki daisetsu beholder, so check on your own. This Memorial is subject to charges. You cannot measure the cospa is 300 yen. Is some stone walls and water create a symbol of Kanazawa, seem to expand world of d.t. Suzuki in the unromantic I'm. Just a soothing relaxing time slowly while watching the water garden was a very good experience.

  • Title, is at Kanazawa's favorite place. Garden of reflection in the water all day long even bored is unlikely. Through the back streets, to kodatsuno Prefectural Museum of fine arts, etc. Interesting small.
